Fawad Ch, Perviaz Elahi hold Lahore High Court decision responsible for ruckus in PA

PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry and PMLQ leader Ch Perviaz Elahi have held Lahore High Court decision responsible for all the ruckus in the provincial Assembly.

A two-judge Lahore High Court (LHC) bench had upheld a single bench’s April 13 verdict that restored the Punjab Assembly deputy speaker’s powers which were withdrawn last week and asked him to hold the polls for the Punjab CM slot on April 16.

The bench headed by Justice Shujaat Ali Khan dismissed appeals filed by PA Speaker Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, PML-Q Secretary General Kamil Ali Agha and PTI parliamentary leader in PA Sibtain Khan challenging the single bench’s verdict.

The bench ruled that PA Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari has the powers to preside over the assembly session.
